LIHUE — Grammy Award-winning band Los Lobos is on a three-island tour supporting the release of “Gates Of Gold.”
The concert is 7 tonight at Kauai Beach Resort.
“We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like immigrant. Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way.” So says Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos, when describing the songs on the band’s new album, Gates of Gold.
Los Lobos’ 1984 album, “How Will The Wolf Survive?” ranks 30th on Rolling Stones list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s.
Tickets start at $45 and are available at www.longhairproductions.com or by calling (808) 337-9234.
